Litigation and Dispute Resolution

We regularly appear in Canadian courts on a range of matters, with a special focus on litigation matters involving governments as parties. We advise clients on unique issues involved in litigating against government entities in the federal and provincial courts, as well as before arbitrators.

In addition, we assist with dispute resolution processes internal to organizations by creating and administering processes to fairly resolve matters.

This may include investigating and reporting on matters that may be the source of a dispute. Also, it may include a more sophisticated approach that draws upon our experience in administrative law. For example, we have assisted the Algonquins of Ontario in their treaty negotiations and nation building efforts by developing and assisting in the administration of an alternative dispute resolution process that reflects the specific needs of the community and its cultural heritage.
